Dallas CAIR Director, Mustafa Carroll told the world at a Muslim rally in Austin, Texas, "If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land."
(Note : CAIR is the same group that was classified as a terrorists group by the UAE and the Obama Administration is fighting the UAE to have them removed from the terrorist list due to their ties to the white house: Obama Administration Spent Christmas Trying To Get Islamist Groups Off Terror List.)
This statement wasn't shocking to many people who have been skeptical of CAIR and the push for Sharia law in the United States. Groups like ISIS have already proven to the world that many Muslims feel that they are above the law of the land, otherwise they wouldn't be committing Jihad and killing their fellow-man all in the name of Allah.
While CAIR tries to claim that they want Muslims and non-Muslims to live in harmony with each other and that the belief of extremism and true Sharia are only the beliefs of a few radicals on the fringes of the religion, statements like this from their Dallas director suggest otherwise. If they truly believed that, why would one of their directors be spouting lawlessness and promoting ignoring the laws of where they live at a Muslim rally? Is he suggesting that Muslims ignore the laws so they can follow Sharia and practice honor killings, Jihad, and other extreme practices that are illegal in most lands? It seems that the real fringe of Islam are those that reject Jihad and honor killings.
The good news is that Mustafa showed his hand when he made this statement. The bad news is people are still going to defend the rise of Islam and claim anyone that raises a warning flag is simply an "Islamaphobe" the left's favorite term for anyone that is skeptical of Islam. In fact when people did criticize his statement Mustafa came out and said that they were merely "anti-foreign." What happened to America? Since when did rejecting the laws of this country become acceptable and trying to defend the nation and its values become a bad thing?
Hopefully with the recent activities across the world, from the hostage situation in Australia to the rise of ISIS in the Middle East people will wake-up and see that it's not just on the fringes that Muslims believe in Jihad and that the freedom truly is at risk of being lost.
